NFL Preview: NFC North

Last season was interesting for the NFC North. Aaron Rodgers was hurt in week 9. Oh joy for the Lions and the Bears! Still, no benefit to the Vikings, they are just shit.

The 2013 Lions were 7-5, having just beat the Packers in week 13. Their future looked bright. I mean, seriously. Rodgers is out, and with 4 games left, and one against the Vikings, they had the NFC North in the bag, right?

Wrong.

The Lions lost all four of their last games.

What will 2014 bring?

Let's start with my favorite team.

Go For Two: Water Cooler Topics For Week 17

Week 17! There is no need to talk about players, or team personalities, it's the time of the year of win or go home, win and get a bye, and still for the sorry few -- playing for some trace amount of respect.

Somehow, the Cowboys managed to do it again. They are like the annoying little brother you have to take everywhere with you, because Mom said so. Why, oh, why do the Cowboys have to be considered the game of the week! Why do they get the prime time slot? Ugh. It's because it's win or go home for the Cowboys. But if you don't like the Cowboys, which a lot of people don't, we have to watch this game. This is why a lot of us hate the Cowboys -- because they are shoved down our throats. I know this is one football fan who hopes they do the latter, and GO HOME!

Also, I like Washington. I like RGIII. He's like Aaron Rodgers, you're happy he's your quarterback, not just because he is an exceptional athlete, but because you would want to hang out with the guy. Sorry Andrew Luck, you look like a psychopath. In fact, if I saw Mr. Luck walking on my side of the street, as a woman, I might cross over to the other side of the street as soon as I got a chance. Tony Romo, I wouldn't cross over to the other side of the street if I saw you, I'd take the opportunity to punch you in your face and wipe away that stupid grin of yours. But I digress.

 

The real game of the week to watch is ...

Go For Two: Water Cooler Topics For Week 15

There are a lot of good games this week. It's coming down to the wire. I can't wait for some of these games. This is the time of the year I wish I had 4 televisions so I could watch all the games.

I'm pumped!

49ers (9-3-1) at Patriots (10-3) 8:20PM ET ** Game of the Week

Again, the Patriots are in the game of the week. Hmm. Interesting. The 49ers are still way up there on the best of the best in the NFC. However, with how they looked twice against the Rams, there is cause for concern. Then there are the Patriots. Man do they look good. They look fired up. They look ready for the playoffs to begin. It will be interesting to see how Brady and the Patriots do against the 49ers defense and vice versa. I'm excited for this game.

I'm sad all the time

Seahawks at Bears 1:00PM EST

 

This will be an interesting game. Seahawks (6-5) just lost their two starting cornerbacks due to failing tests for use of PED's. Chicago (8-3) just got Cutler back and showed that the Bears can not withstand to lose him. Remember last year Cutler was lost to the team late season and it cost the Bears the playoffs.

If playoffs started right now, the Bears are the 3rd seed and the Seahawks are the 6th. I can't stand the Seahawks or the Bears. However, as a Packers fan, I hate the Bears more and I can't root for a team that holds my coveted NFC North division winner slot.  I can't believe I'm going to say this ...

Go Seahawks.

Thanks O Line!

Vikings at Packers 1:00PM EST

 

We all saw what happened to my beloved Packers (7-4) Sunday night. Wah-wah. They got decimated by the Giants. The Pack has something to prove, yet again. This time they have to prove they can beat a playoff worthy team.

The Vikings (6-5), on the other hand, came out super strong, and are now fizzling. The Vikings are most certainly in the playoff wildcard hunt.

This is a no brainer.

Go Pack.

An Ode to Movember

I might need this on a Fathead. On my wall. Immediately.

Tomorrow begins December, which means that two very bad and horrible things are about to happen:

  1. Anthony Romo is going home for the holidays and Tony Romo will begin his usual December slump.
  2. My Cowboys buddy is leaving to vacation in the Middle East for a few months. Convenient that he'll be fleeing as Romo gets bad, isn't it?

Both of these things will make me a very sad LSum in the next few weeks, so I figure I'd get some Movember magic in, so we can all look back and smile as our playoff hopes are dashed. And thus, I present.... THE TOP NFL STACHES & BEARDS

Go For Two: Water Cooler Topics For Week 11

First of all, how can it already be week 11! That blows my mind. Secondly, I'm a little underwhelmed with the games this week.  However, these are the games to watch outside of your hometown favorites ...

 

Image courtesy of losthatsportsblog.comPackers at Lions 1:00PM ET

 

This game is important for the NFC North battle. Chicago is 7-2, Green Bay 6-3, Vikings 6-4, and the Lions are 4-5. Green Bay needs the win to keep up with Chicago (who plays the 49ers. This game should be interesting if both starting quarterbacks are out due to concussions.)

The Lions have been playing inconsistent, terrible football. Yet, they still pose a significant danger to the Pack, because the Lions have the potential to play well. Another factor is Green Bay has a tendency to lose leads and get lazy. The Lions, on the other hand, seem to only have the desire to play well in the fourth quarter.  Those idiosyncrasies could prove to be an interesting match-up.

GO PACKERS

Fantasy Scoreboard, Week 10

Confession: until approximately 5 minutes ago, I used to be really scared to look at pictures of Rob Ryan. Then the internet told me he looks like The Dude and now I'm so blissed out.

I got home from Pittsburgh right as the 4th quarter of the Cowboys game started this week. We turned on the TV and saw that a) the 49ers were losing to the Rams and b) there were no turnovers in the Eagles/Cowboys game thus far. Since the NFL obviously reverted back in time this week, it's inevitable that there were some unexpected winners and losers this week. Read on for more.

I want the Lions to win, but just this once.

Lions at Vikings 1:00PM ET

Lions are 4-4 and the Vikings are 5-4 in the NFC North. This is the toughest division in the NFL. Both teams have seen each other countless times before. There is bad blood. The Vikings, once the darlings of the NFC North, have lost their last two. There are many questioning this team right now. The Lions, on the other hand, have won their last two. Yet, they don't seem to have the same consistency of last year. Plus, too many come from behind, fourth quarter wins. The Lions need to gain consistency and play well in all four quarters of the game if they want to win this game.

More importantly, the Packers are 6-3. I know ... I'm supposed to be reporting on the Lions at Vikings game, but I can't help myself. I need the Lions to win so that the Vikings don't go 6-4. Yet, if the Lions win then they will be inching closer and closer to my Acme Packers. Yikes is the NFC North a tough division. But I can worry about the Lions later. Right now, GO LIONS.

Cardinals at Packers 1:00 PM ET

Image from dailycontributor.comI know, I know. I love the Packers. But here is the thing. The NFC is a much tougher conference than the AFC. The NFC North and the NFC West are the toughest of the tough, with steep competition within these divisions. Each of these teams are already in a fight for the playoffs. At first, it seemed the Vikings would take the lead in the NFC North, now it's the Bears. Where does that leave Green Bay? The 49ers look like they will win the NFC West, but where does that leave Seattle and Arizona? I'll tell you where, it leaves all of these teams battling to be in the playoffs any which way they can -- either as a divisional winner or a wildcard. That Seattle/Packers game is looking more and more important as the season goes on.
